Multi-body dynamics and control – MB1
Room 1 – Chairman: J. De Schutter 13:00 A need for advanced and validated multibody models as a basis for more accurate dynamic load prediction in multi megawatt wind turbine gearboxes (ID 619)
J. Peeters, S. Goris, F. Vanhollebeke, B. Marrant, W. Meeusen, Hansen Transmissions, Belgium In the currently booming market of wind turbines, a clear focus is put on the design of reliable and costeffective subsystems, such as the gearbox. A requirement for reliable gearbox design calculations is accurate load data and sufficient insight in the dynamics of the entire drive train. To ensure this requirement, considerable research effort is spent in advanced modelling and simulation techniques. This paper describes the scope of a research project at Hansen Transmissions for the development of such advanced simulations and the results of the first phase of the project. A purely torsional multibody model in DRESP is used to perform a resonance analysis and an elaborate measurement campaign is done to validate the model and gain confidence in the simulations. Therefore, the measurements are processed to identify the eigenmodes of the gearboxes in the test rig. This analysis yields seven eigenfrequencies of which three are considered as axial eigenmodes, which cannot be predicted with the torsional model. Finally, the torsional model is updated and shows a good correlation with the measurements for three out of four torsional modes which yields confidence in the use of the results.

13:25 Kinematics-based variability of the dynamic behaviour in spatial mechanisms (ID 327)
A. Zanarini, University of Bologna, Italy The intrinsic variability of dynamic properties in spatial systems is faced in this paper by means of a kinematics-based modal approach. An effective analytical-numerical procedure is here presented to mathematically define a local linear model of a spatial mechanism, composed of rigid bodies connected by standard kinematic and lumped elastic constraints; the linearization is effective only in the closeness of the kinematically admissible position of interest and thus yields to a varying generalised eigenproblem, function of the kinematical configuration of the whole system through the working domain. An extended analysis is reported to obtain the motion equations of an unconstrained rigid body, thus linear equations of constrained motion are obtained from linearized displacements and constraint equations. The eigensystem is evaluated in every specific kinematical configuration of interest, mapping the variability of the dynamic performances across the working domain; the kinematical configuration is provided at any step of a userdefined motion law by standard non-linear kinematics. Real industrial applications, consisting in two 6 degree-of-freedom robots, are tested by means of the outlined methodology. Results are reported and discussed in detail.

13:50 Optimal counterweight balancing of spatial mechanisms using voxel-based discretizations (ID 64)
M. Verschuure, B. Demeulenaere, E. Aertbeli¨ en, J. Swevers, J. De Schutter, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium A mechanism exerts forces and moments on its supporting frame, which result in vibration. The aim of counterweight balancing is to reduce this vibration by adding counterweights on the moving mechanism links. This paper shows that, even for the complicated case of spatial mechanisms, finding the counterweight parameters that result in minimal forces and moments under constrained driving torque is an optimization problem that can be reformulated as a convex problem. This reformulation uses voxel-based discretizations, inspired by the typical discretizations used in the area of topology optimization, and results in counterweight shapes that can easily be implemented in practice. The advantages of the proposed methodology in terms of computation time, balancing result and practicality of the counterweights are demonstrated using a literature benchmark consisting of a RSSR - spatial fourbar mechanism.

The resulting fuzzy arithmetic bounds are compared to previously published data. 16:20 Analysis by wavelet transform of friction induced transient nonlinear vibrations in aircraft braking systems (ID 287) F. The arithmetic is then applied to two techniques for predicting milling chatter stability: the classical approach of Altintas. This is achieved mainly by the use of a fixed iteration operator throughout the simulation. so that predicted stability limits do not necessarily agree with those found in practice. while some other instabilities may develop simultaneously.

Flutter is a dynamic aeroelastic instability of surfaces exposed to wind. 15:30 Development of the Envelope Function for Flight Flutter Testing (ID 549) A. the identification process is ideally suited to the frequency domain. IRISA/INRIA. The flutter illustrated in this model results from the dependency of the coupled structural-aerodynamical damping and stiffness with speed that leads to instability.. Moreover. In this way. France This paper discusses a new flutter speed prediction method. The damping ratios are predicted in a second step from extrapolation to estimate the critical flutter speed. France P. University of Manchester. 7 . 15:05 Flutter monitoring using a mixed model-based and data-based approach (ID 594) R. and secondly an on-line implementation for real-time application is introduced.g. Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Vrije Universiteit Brussel. the modal signature is estimated using a flutter prediction algorithm based on fitting a quasi-steady aeroelastic model. The approach can also be used to predict the speed at which flutter will occur. the denominator of the transfer function of the dynamic system is a polynomial function of the Laplace variable and the speed.Monday September 15.). so use can be made of state-of-the-art frequency-domain identification algorithms. Zouari. Belgium L.. Belgium Flutter monitoring is stated as a statistical hypothesis testing problem. The critical flutter speed is found when one of the damping ratios becomes zero. Current flight flutter tests trace damping ratios evolution with aircraft speed and then extrapolate these linearly. 2008 14:40 A new frequency-domain flutter speed prediction algorithm using a simplified linear aeroelastic model (ID 28) T. The coefficients of this denominator are identified for different speeds and then extrapolated to other speeds. The predicted signature is updated at each selected flight speed and the detection test takes account of prediction and monitors the flutter onset until the next flight speed. The proposed method fits identified modal parameters at different flight speeds to a quasi-steady aeroelastic model. This results in an on-line flutter onset detection algorithm that combines a subspace-based residual with the CUSUM test statistics to monitor a flutter instability indicator (damping.

The proposed approach is tested using flutter simulations and compared to classical prediction methods. IRISA/INRIA. Belgium L. this flutter monitoring approach is adjusted to get rid of conservative decisions through using a parametric residual built from a modal signature (modes and mode-shapes) predicted near the critical zone. the prediction of the flutter speed will be more reliable.

The above properties of the cepstrum apply only to SIMO systems and in the normal MIMO situation one possibility is to separate the responses to a single input at each measurement point. Australia Cepstral methods of modal analysis offer two advantages with respect to conventional methods. Another method is represented by a MIMO version of the mean differential cepstrum. no assumptions have to been made about the number of local mass modifications. Fully scaled modes can be obtained using a minimum of extraneous information. multiple output (SIMO) systems. 16:45 Non-Stationary Random Vibration Modelling in a Retractable Arm Structure (ID 132) M. In this new approach. the cepstrum of the responses is the sum of the cepstra of the forcing and transfer functions. University of New South Wales. A new exciting possibility is where there is just one second order cyclostationary source with a particular cyclic frequency such as with a diesel railcar. We present here a more general formulation based on the global use of the two identified modal bases. and detailed analysis of important issues such as model structure selection and time-dependent variance estimation.B. Randall. while it is subject to broadband random force excitation. University of Patras. This suffers from noise problems. The responses to this single source can be separated in the spectral correlation function. The two sets of modal parameters (respectively associated to the initial and modified structure) can then be used to normalise the mode shapes. which does not have to be very accurate. their relative importance with respect to the mass of the initial structure or the modal frequencies or mode shapes changes. which can be provided for example by a finite element (FE) model of the structure. but further developed in a recent PhD thesis by Chia. France Operational Modal Analysis is now a well established approach which allows identifying the modal parameters of a structure in operational conditions and from output only measurements. Critical comparisons among various estimation methods. The other advantage is that for single input. and provided the spectrum of the force is reasonably smooth (on a log scale) the corresponding cepstrum is very short and the higher quefrency part of the cepstrum is completely dominated by the transfer function and can be curve-fitted for its poles and zeros. 17:10 New cepstral methods of operational modal analysis (ID 339) R. The arm is exteneded from its fully retracted to its fully expanded position at a constant speed. The easiest way to estimate the scaling factors consists in introducing well controlled structural modifications. 2008 Operational modal analysis – OMA1 Room 2 – Chairman: P. The first is that they give both poles and zeros of the transfer function. FEMTO-ST Institute. This new normalisation method is illustrated and validated with simulated and experimental results. Furthermore it allows an independent scaling of the two sets of mode shapes. the mode shape scaling cannot be achieved from a single identification. Spiridonakos. the most straightforward of which are local mass changes.D. Several approaches can be found in the literature which have been recently extended to acoustic and vibroacoustic problems. for convolutively mixed systems. S. so the excitation forces for the two measurements are not assumed to have similar amplitudes. Greece The problem of parametric non-stationary vibration modelling of a time-varying retractable arm structure is addressed. The non-stationary vertical acceleration vibration response is modelled via parametric methods based on Functional Series Time-dependent AutoRegressive and Moving Average (FS-TARMA) models. as demonstrated in a recent PhD thesis by Hanson. The methods available for this include blind source separation (BSS) techniques. But all of the existing methods consider each mode independently and assume slight frequency changes and negligible mode shape modifications. This is a much weaker restriction than the assumption of most techniques that the excitation is white. Fassois. As the input forces are unknown.D.

10:55 Structural dynamics and electromechanical (MEMS) filters (ID 130)
I. Bucher, E. Elka, Technion, Israel This paper addresses the optimal shape design of segmented spatial sensors and actuators that excite selected mode shapes and perform modal filtering. In addition, certain topologies that make specific use of vibrating structures are developed. In MEMS filters, the input signal is converted to external electrostatic forces and in order to perform the desired filtering, the electrodes need to be shaped such that they excite only a desired part of the dynamics. These electrodes are usually designed according to some simplified theoretical identities, often representing lumped models, where in practice, MEMS structures’ dynamical behavior is governed by a three dimensional continuum. Still some structures are adequately analyzed as discrete models, for these cases inverse problem methodology is adopted. An optimization scheme that shapes continuous electrodes to achieve optimal filtering is developed in this paper. The method provides a trimming methodology that can be performed on a real device and it illustrates the need for suitable modeling. Several simulated example are shown to examine the effectiveness of the proposed optimization methods.

J. Antoni, University of technology of Compi` egne, France One-n-th octave filter-banks are common place in acoustics and vibrations. Yet, because they are generally not orthogonal, they may produce undesirable effects such as non-conservation of energy. This paper introduces a solution to the design of orthogonal 1/n-th octave filter-banks that proceeds directly from a subband decomposition in the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) domain. Among the many perspectives that such a solution offers, it provides a sound basis to the definition of instantaneous active sound intensity, a concept that has nourished many controversies in the past.

11:45 Calibration of the two microphone transfer function method by determining the hard wall impedance at shifted reference sections. (ID 610)
R. Boonen, P. Sas, W. Desmet, W. Lauriks, G. Vermeir, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium In many acoustic simulations, particularly when using lumped parameter models or electrical analog circuits, the acoustic impedance of a component needs to be determined accurately. A widely used acoustic impedance measurement method is the “two microphone transfer function method”, which is standardized in ISO-10534-2. When the acoustic impedance is needed over a wide frequency band with a high impedance magnitude range, this method faces some limitations. In this paper, a calibration method is proposed which uses hard wall impedance measurements at different positions of the reference section. The measured hard wall impedance is used to calibrate the microphone positions, to compensate the microphone mismatch and to estimate the wave guide damping. Also, the measured hard wall impedance can be used as performance criterion. It can be used to select frequency bands from different load impedance measurements where the accuracy is maximum and to assemble them in a load impedance measurement. As result, impedances with a high ratio with respect to the characteristic duct impedance can be accurately measured. The capability of the presented calibration method is illustrated by the impedance measurement of an open duct end and a closed tube.

12:10 Modal Identification of a Vibrating Ring-based Single-axis Rate Sensor (ID 143)
R. Elliott, C.H.J. Fox, S. McWilliam, The University of Nottingham, United Kingdom In this work, a direct least squares method of identifying imperfections in a single-axis MEMS ring sensor is proposed. A single-axis ring sensor is characterised by two close modes of vibration (potentially separated by less than 0.001%) and very low levels of damping, both of which can hinder common modal identification methods. The mass, damping and stiffness matrices are identified in a least squares sense. In contrast to methods documented for similar systems, constraints are placed on the system matrices so that they are symmetric. The imperfection is then characterised in terms of the modal properties of the ring, extracted from the constrained system. The modal identification algorithm is designed so that it can be extended easily

Room 4 – Chairman: D. Rixen 14:00 Historical Review of Spatial Domain Modal Parameter Estimation Procedures (ID 515)
D.L. Brown, R.J. Allemang, University of Cincinnati, United States Recently, there have been significant advancements in remote sensing of spatial information using optical scanning methods. The optical scanning methods include continuous scanning lasers, digital image correlation and photogrammetry. The scanning methods offer the possibility of very high spatial resolution with 3 to 6 degrees of freedom at each spatial point, thus tremendously reducing the requirement of sensor arrays and cabling systems used in a large modal test. The testing procedures for conducting tests using these technologies will have to be adjusted to accommodate the scanning procedures. Many of the testing procedures of the past may be very well-suited for these scanning methods and need to be reviewed; in particular methods based upon using spatial information in the initial stages of extracting modal parameters. This paper traces the evolution of spatial domain methods and how parameter estimation algorithms have been incorporated into these methods. A spatial domain testing method developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s, spatial sine testing (SST), is reviewed in more detail since it appears to be well-suited to these optical scanning methods.

14:25 Increased Accuracy of Residual-Inertia-Based Rigid Body Identification through Direct Fitting of Inertia Parameters to FRF Data (ID 211)
R. Kloepper, M. Okuma, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan The prediction of a mechanical structure’s rigid dynamic behavior requires knowledge of ten inertia parameters. In cases where no accurate models of the structure’s geometry and mass distribution are available, these parameters must be identified experimentally. The Residual Inertia (RI) Method is a straightforward identification method based on experimental frequency response functions (FRFs). The RI Method derives the rigid body properties in three steps. First, the RI value is extracted from each FRF through modal curve fitting. Next, the RI values are transformed into RI vectors representing the reference point motion. Finally, the body properties are derived from the reference point RI vectors. In most publications, the three steps are treated as independent least squares problems. Other authors solved steps two and three simultaneously through nonlinear optimization. As a third possibility, this paper proposes to solve all three steps at once by integrating of the rigid body property identification into the modal curve fitting algorithm. In the first part of this paper, the mathematical differences between these three approaches are discussed. It is shown that only the single-step method yields rigid body properties that are least-squares optimal with respect to the experimental data. In the second part, numerical and experimental studies are presented that compare the three methods in terms of accuracy. As predicted in the analytical study, the single-step approach yielded the highest accuracy, followed by the two-step approach.

Swevers, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium This paper presents SMILE (State-space Model Interpolation of Local Estimates), a new technique to estimate linear parameter varying state-space models for multiple-input multiple-output systems whose dynamics depends on a single varying parameter, called the scheduling parameter. The SMILE technique is based on the interpolation of linear time-invariant models that are valid for fixed operating conditions of


Tuesday September 16, 2008 the system, that is, for constant values of the scheduling parameters. The methodology yields affine LPV models that are numerically well-conditioned and therefore suitable for LPV control synthesis procedures. The underlying interpolation technique is formulated as a nonlinear least-squares optimization problem that can be efficiently solved by standard solvers. Application of the proposed methodology to a vibroacoustic setup, whose dynamics are highly sensitive to the ambient temperature, clearly demonstrates the potential of the SMILE technique.

15:15 A Modal Parameter Identification Method for the Elimination of Support Influences in Experimental Modal Analysis (ID 189)
C.L. Valentin, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands D. de Klerk, Delft University of Technology & M¨ uller-BBM VAS GmbH, Germany D.J. Rixen, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands Dynamic analysis of a structure plays an important role during its design phase. The dynamic analysis usually consists of both numerical simulations of a structural model as well as experimental modal analysis for model validation. For model validation, both numerical simulations and modal testing are often performed with the assumption of free boundary conditions. In reality, this can only be approximated however because of the required structural supports in the experiment. The stiffness and damping of the supports has an influence on the measurements and subsequently on the extracted modal frequencies and damping. Depending on the type of structure or analysis, these errors might not be admissible. This article introduces a MIMO modal analysis method which eliminates the suspension influences and therefore allows the determination of the free-free structural properties. The presented method determines the modal parameters based on a nonlinear solution to the constrained pole-residue model.

Among these, the effect of frequency scaling and symbol characteristics based upon other modal information are used as a mechanism for identifying and eliminating computational poles.

F. Petit, M. Loccufier, D. Aeyels, Ghent University, Belgium Using a substructure coupling technique the problem of assigning anti resonances is reformulated as a pole placement problem which can be analyzed in a more general framework. A possible approach to create these points of zero vibration is by attaching passive undamped vibration absorbers. As this approach is sensitive to changes in the excitation frequency, a robustness measure is proposed. Based on this measure, a better understanding is provided regarding the attachment location of the absorber and the absorber mass.

11:45 On the use of an FE based energy flow post-processing method for vehicle structural dynamic analysis (ID 440)
M. Tadina, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia R. Ragnarsson, B. Pluymers, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium S. Donders, LMS International, Belgium W. Desmet, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium M. Boltezar, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia This paper presents an energy flow post-processing tool for structural dynamic analysis which is based on conventional dynamic finite element (FE) analysis. Based on the global dynamic behaviour of a system and on local subcomponent descriptions, the energy flow between the various components can be predicted, as can the energy dissipation within individual subcomponents. This information can assist a design engineer in making design modifications and holds potential in optimising high-frequency energy based models, such as statistical energy analysis (SEA) models. The developed approach is implemented using a commercially available FE code and is validated for both simple academic cases and for an industrial vehicle body-in-white.

Vibro-acoustic modelling and prediction – VAM2
Room 5 – Chairman: F. Augusztinovicz 14:00 On solving the Helmholtz equation in terms of amplitude and phase (ID 253)
Y.H. Wijnant, A. de Boer, University of Twente, Netherlands Solving the Helmholtz equation for high wavenumbers is a major challenge. Since one needs at least some elements per wavelength, the computational effort in finite element or boundary element calculations increases drastically with increasing wavenumbers. However, for exterior problems in unbounded domains, the amplitude and phase are smooth and non-oscillatory functions (at least some distance away from the radiating object). Therefore, we propose to solve the Helmholtz equation in terms of amplitude and phase instead of pressure. The paramount advantage of this approach is that any common discretization remains accurate for high wavenumbers. A drawback of the method is that the equations for amplitude and phase are non-linear and hence need to be solved iteratively. Substitution of p = Aeiϕ in the Helmholtz equation yields two, non-linear, coupled, real-valued, differential equations. These equations have been reported some decades ago but have only been used to trace ‘rays’ for given solutions of the Helmholtz equation. To eventually be able to include inhomogeneous regions and fluid-structure interaction efficiently, a finite element discretization is preferred over a boundary element discretization. Therefore, finite elements were used to discretize the governing equations. We present several solutions and, despite of its non-linearity, show the efficiency of the method for high wavenumbers.

14:25 A finite element for viscothermal wave propagation (ID 104)
W.R. Kampinga, Y.H. Wijnant, A. de Boer, University of Twente, Netherlands The well known wave equation describes isentropic wave propagation. In this equation, non-isentropic boundary layer effects are neglected. This is allowed if the characteristic dimensions of the acoustic domain are large with respect to the thickness of the boundary layers. However, in small acoustic devices such as hearing aid loudspeakers, the boundary layer effects are significant and can not be neglected. A model that describes viscothermal wave propagation is needed to model such devices. For viscothermal wave propagation, the compressibility of air depends on the thermal behavior that can range from adiabatic to isothermal. Moreover, the propagation behavior can range from propagation with negligible viscosity to propagation with negligible inertia (Stokes flow). This complete range is accurately described by the low reduced frequency model. This model’s major drawback is that it is only defined for simple geometries such as thin layers and narrow tubes. It is not valid for arbitrary geometries.


Tuesday September 16, 2008 To overcome this drawback, a three dimensional viscothermal finite element has been developed. Like the LRF model, it covers the complete range from isothermal Stokes flow to isentropic acoustics. As opposed to the LRF model, the viscothermal finite element can be used to analyze complicated geometries. This paper presents the weak formulation of the finite element. Furthermore, two examples are presented in which the results of the finite element models are compared to measurements.

14:50 Efficient analysis of large trimmed configurations using modal approaches (ID 276)
B. Van den Nieuwenhof, G. Lielens, J.-P. Coyette, F. Acher, D. d’Udekem, Free Field Technologies S.A., Belgium Modal approaches are widely used in the automotive industry for investigating the frequency response of large vibroacoustic models. The handling of damped configurations is however problematic in a modal context as soon as the damping is not represented by modal damping factors, e.g. for trim components. This paper presents two modal-based approaches for the efficient analysis of large trimmed configurations. The first approach consists in building an energetic database describing the trim component behaviour. Each structural or fluid mode is projected on the trim component and an analysis is performed in order to evaluate the energies that are stored and dissipated in the trim component. The modal parameters of both the structure and the cavity are then updated by taking into account the energetic behaviour of the trim component. In the second approach, a reduction of the trim component impedance matrix to the interface dofs with the structure and the fluid domains is performed and this reduced impedance matrix is projected on the structure/fluid modal bases. The paper reviews the computational characteristics of both approaches and highlights the features of both methods that made them directly valuable in an industrial context. Both approaches, implemented in the Actran/Trim software, are finally demonstrated on an application involving a simplified car model.

15:15 Sound wave propagation modelling in the presence of a noise barrier: a comparison between analytical and numerical solutions (ID 443)
Y. Nkoumou, T. Mertens, Ph. Bouillard, Universit´ e Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium Several analyses carried out to estimate the attenuation due to the presence of a noise barrier, have as a starting point the calculation method proposed by Maekawa. Maekawa has established a curve to predict the insertion loss behind barriers. However, this model has some limitations which have been the subject of many studies. This paper presents the results of numerical simulations on simple 2D cases (performed with the acoustical software ACTRAN) and comparisons of these results with others based on more accurate prediction methods than the Maekawa curve. The final aim of this study is to provide a more efficient prediction model for the noise barrier design. It implies developing a new numerical method in order to cover efficiently the whole frequency range.

A. Pescetto, CETENA S.p.A., Italy O. Pinto, C. Tarditi, FINCANTIERI, Italy This paper describes a cost effective system developed to estimate underwater acoustic emissions of surface vessels. The system, which doesn’t replace tests in range facilities, it’s rather intended to provide a light approach to underwater acoustic measurements, and can be easily deployed at sea from the ‘target’ ship itself or from a little supporting boat. It is particularly useful, for example, in checking the vessel signature


Tuesday September 16, 2008 during preliminary sea trials, after refitting operations or just before a mission. The battery powered system is composed of a spar buoy and a receiving station. The battery powered buoy is provided with an omnidirectional hydrophone, a GPS receiver, a wireless transmitter and an embedded PC. The on board receiving station is composed of a notebook, a GPS receiver, a wireless receiver, an acquisition board and of an ad hoc developed software for acquisition and acoustic post-processing. The receiving station include a tracking system able to help the ship to follow the correct approach in test run. Data are stored on the solid state memory of the buoy and at the same time transferred through the wireless link to the receiving station on board, to be processed in real time. The two GPS receivers allow to compensate the measured levels with the actual distance. Moreover signals from accelerometers placed on board near relevant machineries and on the radiating hull can be acquired by the on board receiving station to better correlate radiated noise and ship sources. Depending on the background, the intrinsic very low noise level, allows the acquisition of the acoustic signature not only of the commercial, but also of the more silent military ships. Experience and feed-back from the use of the system at sea on different vessels are included in the paper.

16:30 A Coupled DBE/FE Analysis for the Prediction of Propeller Induced Pressure and Vibration on the Ship Hull (ID 497)
C. Annicchiarico, CETENA S.p.A., Italy M.P. Salio, M. Viviani, University of Genoa, Italy The present paper deals with a methodology for the prediction of propellers excitation and associated ship response. A simple ellipsoidal representation of submerged and floating bodies has been used first to understand how hull pressure distributions are affected by the location and frequency of propeller sources. Then, the analysis of a ship, a twin-screw cruise liner, has been addressed and semi-empirical methods have been used to give a characterization of propellers in terms of acoustic source strength, in the frequency range between 1 and 50Hz. Both the ellipsoid and the ship have been analyzed as rigid as well as elastic bodies. In the first case a direct-BEM (boundary element method) analysis has been carried out, whereas in the second case a coupled direct-BEM / structural FEM (finite element method) has been conducted taking into account the dynamic response of the structure. It is worth pointing out that the investigated frequencies range was limited to 50Hz by the definition of the adopted FEM mesh and the forthcoming continuation of the study includes the extension to the limit of 80Hz, indicated by the ISO 6954:2000 standards.

16:55 Sound Radiation from a Submarine due to Propeller Forces Transmitted via the Shaft and Fluid to the Hull (ID 536)
R. Kinns, S. Merz, N.J. Kessissoglou, The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia The structural and acoustic responses of a submarine hull to fluctuating propeller forces are investigated in the low frequency range. The fluctuating forces are caused by operation of the propeller in a non-uniform wake, and are transmitted to the submarine hull through the shaft and also via the fluid, because of the resulting dipole field of the propeller. Numerical models have been developed to simulate the strongly coupled fluid-structure interaction of the submerged vessel in the frequency domain. The hull is modelled using the finite element method (FEM), which allows for structural complexities such as the ringstiffeners, bulkheads, end closures and the propeller-shafting system. A simple, passive vibration attenuation system known as a resonance changer (RC) is included in the model of the propeller shafting system. The fluid is modelled using the boundary element method (BEM) in which the radiation damping and added mass effect of the water are taken into account. It is demonstrated that the performance of the RC is influenced greatly by the effects of forces transmitted to the hull via the fluid. Propeller vibration is taken into account in determination of the fluid and structural excitation of the hull. The effect of changing the propeller mass is demonstrated.
